  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 4 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 4 stalks celery sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • salt/pepper
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 10.5 oz cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken shredded
  • 16.3 oz refrigerated biscuits each biscuit cut into 4 equal pieces
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley for topping


  • Heat olive oil in Dutch oven or heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and fragrant.
  • Add the chicken broth, chicken soup, water and shredded chicken. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and add the biscuit pieces.
  • Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top with parsley, if desired, and serve warm.


  • Add a bay leaf while cooking for a punch of added flavor.
  • Drizzle up to 1 cup heavy cream over top of the soup 5 minutes before pulling the pan from the heat. Stir until heated through. This will transform this dish into a deliciously creamy soup with a little thicker texture.
